United States
The Big Apple At Its Very Best

Ker & Downey presents a New York City holiday designed to be distinctly different from a typical tour of The Big Apple. Experience one of the world’s greatest cities like a VIP. Dine with a celebrity chef. Go on a helicopter ride over Manhattan. Enjoy a behind-the-scenes tour of Broadway. And escape to the Hamptons on a private yacht. With Ker & Downey, you are guaranteed to experience New York at its very best.


Welcome to New York City! Upon arrival in the city, settle into your fabulous hotel in the heart of the city. Then set out on a VIP shopping tour with your own personal stylist, who works with major celebrities. They will take you to the top stores and boutiques based on your interest and style. This evening, your personal concierge will help arrange dinner at one of New York’s best tables.

This morning, meet your pilot at the Downtown Manhattan Heliport for a deluxe 30-minute helicopter tour over New York City, flying over Manhattan's most iconic landmarks. After your helicopter adventure, head to a secret wine cellar for a special seven-course lunch and wine tasting.

Rest this afternoon or enjoy a privately guided tour of some of the best sites in the city in any neighborhood of your choosing. Perhaps meander through the galleries in Chelsea, or visit the Whitney Museum of Art.

This evening, head to a luxury apartment overlooking Central Park for dinner prepared by a celebrity chef. Enjoy your feast alone in a romantic setting, or invite your celebrity chef to join you and hear about their story and how they became the acclaimed chef they are today. 

This morning, enjoy a private tour of the Metropolitan Museum of Art before doors open to the public with an expert guide.

This afternoon, discover the city on your own. Alternatively, we can arrange for a guide to show you other unexplored neighborhoods, such as Brooklyn, where you can learn to make pizza from scratch or walk the streets of Williamsburg with a local.

This evening—Broadway! Enjoy the magic of your favorite Broadway show then go backstage to meet one of the show's cast members. They will tell you all about the experience of nightly performances and discuss the inner workings of the show. 

After your whirlwind tour of New York, take a helicopter to the Hamptons for a day trip on board a private yacht. Get a taste of sailing and stop for some swimming and water games along the way. You will eventually helicopter back to New York City for your last night in the city that never sleeps.   

This morning, check out of your hotel. You will then be transferred to the airport for your flight onward.
